Life Is Too Short? What You Shouldn’t Be Stressing Over

Living life to the fullest is one thing we hear a lot of. That, and how life is too short. But as we live our days and live our lives, do we take both of those statements into account? It’s hard when you work a job that you don’t enjoy. Perhaps staying in a relationship where you don’t feel completely fulfilled. Maybe the daily stress of life is getting you down, like money troubles, debt mounting up or not earning enough to save. It’s you that’s the problem. Maybe you’re too focused on losing weight or getting that promotion that you don’t stop to enjoy life every once in a while.

There is no denying that we have all been through a very tough time right now. Life changed this year and we are all facing a new normal as things start to get back to normal. Lockdown may have helped us to put things into perspective, perhaps allowing us the beauty of time to think things through. Maybe you now have stronger ideas from what you want out of life, or maybe you have guilt looking back and feeling like you haven’t taken advantage of it. We are all at risk for one reason or another of letting life pass us by. By not thinking, being prepared and taking risks. With that in mind, here are some of the ways we can inject a bit of life loving back into our daily routines. Let’s face it, we all still have to work and pay our bills. But perhaps we can relax a little about some of the finer details.

For obsessing over healthy eating?

Maybe you focus too much on your weight. This can mean it can take over your life. But why should you let it? Are you happy with yourself? Too many times we can let weight issues become an obsession. That it becomes the only important thing in our lives. However, it isn’t the be all and end all. There are risks for letting things like this take over your life. Binge eating on kale isn’t the life anyone wants, and it can be quite bad for you anyway. Who knew? On a serious note healthy eating shouldn’t be a way of life, it should be more about a lifestyle change. We all know that the food we eat nourishes our body so instead of focusing on diets and extreme ways of losing weight, we should start to think about what our bodies need. This helps toward s a lifestyle change that is sustainable and can actually help us to feel good.

For not taking those chances?

Have you considered yourself to be a risk taker? These days more people stress over the little details than making snap decisions. Is this a good thing? Perhaps so. It counts to be prepared in situations and to work out all angles. There is more risk these days than ever before. More chances to lose money maybe. More chances to be hurt in a relationship due to past hurts and mistakes. However, there is an argument to say that you shouldn’t let things like this deter your life. That living on the edge is all part of living your life to the full. From those relationships, we learn what we want from the future ones. Losing money might be an issue.. As long as you feel happy with the money you use and are prepared to lose then what’s the harm in the buzz? Sometimes, it helps to be prepared. We should all take chances once in a while. As we never know the true lessons that we can learn from them.

For worrying about things you cannot control?

Lockdown has meant that we have naturally become worried about the state of the world because of a virus. But worrying about things we cannot control is not a recent development in our lives. We can all be guilty of worrying about other people’s actions or reactions to things. So, we can worry about outcomes that we have no control over. We can worry about what tomorrow has in store or the future, without truly knowing what will happen. Life is too short for worrying about things we cannot control. Yes we can control our own  actions, our own thoughts and responses, but that is all we can do. As long as you feel happy and secure in you, then don’t waste any time worrying about the things you can do nothing about. You may start to see that this can help to release a lot of pressure you may have placed upon yourself.

For negative thinking to take over?

A negative mindset can be a big stumbling block in your road. It can stop you moving forward because you become trapped in your own self doubt and lack of confidence. Life is too short for negativity. That goes for the negative thoughts, the mindset, the people in your life. They all have their own effect on you and it can be damaging. Try and create a positive mindset and watch life be transformed. This can often be one of the hardest things to overcome. Right now life seems negative and we are hit with devastating news each day. Life has changed dramatically. Children have to be in school, people haven’t been in work or have had to work from home. It has been hard and it is so easy to focus on all of the negative aspects of it, which then become a habit and has you stuck in a rut of negative thinking. But you can also look at ways you can see the positives out of this strange time. A habit can take 21 days to break, so why not start looking at some of the changes that you can make for the better? Positivity is just part of it.

Let’s hope this has inspired you to consider whether you are living your life to the full.
